    Lost CEUS

    I have been audited. They go back 2 years from your license renewal date here in Texas. Plenty of fre and cheap CEU's available online. Just buckle down on a weekend and do it.
  2. Finish your year. Then any neuro unit will be happy to have you.
  3. Silverbells - to see if she is real 🙂

    Pros and cons of RN clinic nursing?

    What do you have to lose? Give it a try.
  6. Just curious. Here in DFW I see hospitalizations are rising to 14%. How are things in the hospitals? Are things relatively normal? No more furloughs? Please share. I am not in acute care, but I am of course very interested in the effects on acut...

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Thank you for that update JBMmom. It is interesting to hear about the younger and less "at risk" illness. You just do not hear much about that and it is pretty scary.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    We have not had any mask mandates other than what different stores etc may have had and none of those for a long time. Our positivity rate is now 10% thankfully. The only place I have worn a mask in the last 6 months are at work because we are in a b...

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Things have really changed here. Positivity rate down to 12% from almost 40%. Covid hospitalizations rate in low 10% ish. Hope this lasts.

    Love Ozark. The last several episodes were crazy good and bad LOL! Ruth is my favorite although all of them are amazing.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Thanks for that update subee. It is really interesting to see way the cases are instead of just poorly written ADD style news stories.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    I have no doubt that is a contributing factor JBMom. Inexperienced nurses, 3 ICU patients being too many even for the experienced nurses. Not enough support staff.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Thanks for the updates. They say our peak should be easing off here, but of course the staffing shortages at the hospitals are critical. If nothing else, I hope this ends up empowering nurses to have more say in how things are done finally.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Interesting. How does is compare with pre-pandemic flu season loads and diversion or is there absolutely no comparison at all?

    COVID 19 Dx

    Hope you and your coworkers are feeling recovered soon.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    It is a good quote. The point of this particular thread is not really debate, but factual information from nurses working in the hospitals about what things are really like.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    I hate hearing that Wuzzie. My friends in Seattle that are having critical procedures delayed due to lack of bed/staff availability tells the tale thought too.

    COVID 19 Dx

    After last Friday appt. it looks like we will do both eyes at the same time. Enoculation with prosthesis for the glaucoma eye and laser surgery to try to prevent/delay onset of the glaucoma in the other eye. Your new rescue is gorgeous.

    She is a beauty!

    COVID 19 Dx

    Happyg, Yea we are. In fact we have another appointment today. He did talk about possible laser surgery, but felt the pressure was too high.

    Abuse Accusations

    It is crazy that they would report this.

    COVID 19 Dx

    I am sorry about your loss. So tough. One of our rescues got diagnosed with glaucoma of all things the day after that. Now we are facing removal of one eye with the other to follow most likely in the next year. New territory for us having a blind dog...
